Yellow Submarine (King Features/Apple Corps, Dir. George Dunning)

Lita Eliscu, East Village Other, 15 November 1968

YELLOW SUBMARINE is the full-length cartoon made on the basis of the Beatle's Sgt. Peppers' album, and as the story goes, the Beatles wanted nothing to do with it at first, then grudgingly agreed to see rushes, loved it, and eventually wrote some more songs for it, even allowing their own label, Apple, to be placed in conjunction with the original producer, King Features.
